The Lamplighter, by Charles Dickens, with weird typography. An experiment in memory state and pattern matching and short-term retention.

Well, I have to admit that "an experiment in memory state and pattern matching" is a far better justification than the one the guy actually gives on his top page, which is an utter crock.

As I noted on Twitter: I like creating peculiar substitution ciphers for fun, too, but I don't invent elaborate excuses to try to make them sound useful.

Also, if he wants people to actually learn that, he needs to start with initial lessons in a font about twice as big. I probably could have worked my way through The Lamplighter before eyestrain set in if he had.
